I suggest having a look at THE MINOTAUR on BBC2 tomorrow night. It starts at 7:35, so you can switch straight over from DOCTOR WHO, having missed very little. They're broadcasting it bizarrely, with an episode of HAVE I GOT NEWS FOR YOU between the acts. From listening to the radio broadcast, I would say the bit to really check out is the last twenty minutes or so of the first act, which was very, very scary, and evidently performed with full visual gruesomeness. I quite like Birtwhistle's work. He certainly can do violence and creeepiness.
I think BIG BROTHER has definitely jumped the shark, and nothing can help it. Still, I'd rather watch it than THE APPRENTICE, which people seem to be so hooked on these days, or cooking competitions.
